Can't Install Zorin OS - stucked at 'creating user'.


I tried to install Zorin OS 9 Core on my Toshiba A210. I heard that it's a good Linux OS to start when you're trying to transition from Windows. Everything went well at first. However, after 'copying files', an error occured, saying 'Failed to create secure directory (/run/user/999/pulse): Operation not permitted' and it was stucked at 'creating user'.

Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi...

Welcome to the forum

Linux Mint is also a good distribution for beginners that might be worth trying out.

Regards...

Did you do an md5 checksum on the Zorin iso file to verify the download?
Did you try to install Zorin from a DVD you created?
Did you try to install Zorin from a flash drive? If so, what software did you use to create the bootable flash drive?
How old/new is this computer? Some info on the hardware specs would help, particularly the CPU and RAM.
You make reference to windows in general but give no specific indication that you actually have any version of windows installed and which version it is if you have it, that would help?
Which Installation Type option did you select for the install?

Your operation not permitted is a bit unusual coming from an installation device. I did an online search for it and your post was on the first page so it is uncommon.

I actually had installed Zorin 9 yesterday just as a test and had no problems with it, took about 25 minutes to install. Posting answers to the questions above might help.

If you decide to try Mint, I would suggest that you take a look at the User Guide for the specific version you plan to try at the link below.

Welcome to the forum nocraza. I also vote for Linux Mint for newcomers. It is very 'windows' like.

I've never seen that error before. I'm not sure what difference it would make to use Mint rather than Zorin because they use the same installer.

Hi...

I didn't know this, thanks for pointing that out. Hopefully, the OP will post back with a report on how it went.

Regards...
